The Samsung 960 solid state drive is a leap in design and engineering for data storage. Using the revolutionary compact M.2 form factor, the Samsung 960 Pro SSD offers high end and work-horse computers the ability to transfer and store data extremely quickly. To achieve this, Samsung have developed a V-NAND based technology using a revolutionary 48-layers to provide a stable, reliable storage medium, with a focus on high speed data transfers and large storage capacities.
How is this SSD different?
The Samsung 960 Pro uses the MVMe interface in place of the conventional SATA interface. This next-gen interface offers support for PCIe Generation 3 x4 lanes for an upgraded data bandwidth with lower latencies when compared with conventional SATA SSD.
How fast is this M.2 SSD?
The increased bandwidth of this SSD allows for a leap in sequential read and write speeds to drives of this type. The Samsung 960 Pro is capable of achieving speeds of up to 3,500MBps (read) and 2,100MBps (write) and with an IOPS of 440/360K, this M.2 drive offers you extreme performance for your most used programs. The drive uses a protective thermal guard system to dissipate excess heat when the card is under load.
How do I connect this M.2 drive?
Using the M.2 design, this drive connects directly to an M.2 slot located on motherboard, or through existing M.2 PCIe cards. These ports are usually found on higher tier motherboards, but are slowly becoming a standard connection type for future motherboard models*.
*Due to the nature the M.2 NVMe connection we recommend you consult your motherboard manufacturer for support before purchase.
Samsung monitoring and management
The Samsung 960 Pro utilises the Samsung Magician advanced software management package. This allows you to maintain and monitor your SSD like a professional, check available storage space and overall condition of the drive. Keep your drive up to date by using the Magician to download and install the latest firmware, keeping your SSD in top condition at all times.
